Product Description


Kenwood built the KDC-BT742U CD receiver to keep you in touch with the outside world, without taking your attention away from driving. Bluetooth™ connectivity, designed for Kenwood by industry leader Parrot, gives you safe, hands-free calling with your compatible phone. The receiver mutes the music for an incoming call, then you speak through the built-in microphone while listening to your caller over your car speakers. The front panel tells the whole story — one large jog dial, simple controls, and two inputs, both illuminated so you can find them easily at night. Plug your iPod® into the USB input, and an advanced "dual search function" lets you skip through your song lists quickly, either alphabetically or by jumping through your files in 10% increments. You'll see artist and song info on the bright 13-character fluorescent display. You can plug your MP3 player or any other audio source into the minijack auxiliary input. Discover out-of-this-world radio by hooking up a Kenwood satellite radio tuner, or connect an HD Radio™ tuner for enhanced reception and additional programming from participating AM and FM stations. CD fans can load up a multi-disc changer for long-playing road trips. Whatever you listen to, the KDC-BT742U offers an extensive set of soundshaping features. A built-in digital processor includes EQ settings designed specifically for iPod, a compressor for highway driving, and digital time alignment, along with advanced equalization and frequency filter functions. Three sets of preamp outputs make it easy to connect and control outboard amps. A wireless remote allows your passengers to pick the entertainment without bothering the driver. Kenwood's "Short-cut" function gets you to your favorite iPod selection, radio station, or phone number with one touch of a button  you can set up to six shortcuts.
